Not many leaks have surfaced as of yet surrounding the overall plot of Shazam!, but thanks to some toys hitting shelves early, a major one has been revealed.
Do not go below this picture if you don’t want to know. Even Shazam! wants you to rethink if you want to know this.
Thanks to some images posted to Twitter, it seems that Billy won’t be the only one to power up when Shazam! hits film screens.
It appears that all of Billy’s foster siblings will be getting their powers as well. Shown on the packaging are Shazam (Zachary Levi), Mary (Grace Fulton), Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer), Eugene (Ian Chen), Darla (Faithe Herman), and Pedro (Jovan Armand) all in their hero costumes.
While historically only Billy has had the powers of Shazam!, in the current version of the mythos he can share his powers with his foster siblings. When they say “Shazam!” in unison, Eugene gains the wisdom of Solomon, Pedro has the strength of Hercules, and so on.
Also pictured with the figures are some sort of little demons. These are believed to be some of the Seven Deadly Enemies.
It should be noted that toy “spoilers” are not always 100% accurate due to lead times in production, wanting to expand the line beyond the core story and so on. In this particular case, however, it does appear this will be a plot point. If correct, it would seem that Shazam! may be getting a wee bit more crowded when it comes to characters.
Shazam! hits theaters on April 5.
